  No lining. It's meant for layering, I'd say. The moleskin is reasonably warm, a moderate weight. (I don't know Barbour, so I can't make the comparison.) Last night it was in the 40s and I wore the field jacket out with a light sweater and was very comfortable -- could have gone without, probably, but if there's ever the opportunity to wear a sweater, I tend to take it.
 They look great. I'd just wear them exactly as you'd wear any charcoal gray pant (assuming that's the color?), taking care to avoid glen plaid. You've already got the idea! When you're wearing patterned pants, just go about your business as you normally would and wear what you'd normally wear if they were a solid pair of pants in the ground color. In the Season 3 finale of Mad Men, Don Draper wears a way louder pair of glen plaid trousers and then a navy v-neck sweater...
In non-sneaker, non-trunk show news, the field jacket and tweed overshirt are incredible and the proof is in these really great photos I took just now:       Field Jacket, Loden Moleskin Tweed Overshirt, Charcoal Ashland dual-striped oxford from 2010ish Ring-Ring Wilshires Alden 403s from EP (unseen)

 I agree with you in general, but @chocsosa just does snug jackets as a style choice. A few people (myself included) have said this to him and it always comes down to, "Thanks, but I'm good." Which is just part of having personal style. Sometimes when I post stuff I get grief for wearing too many patterns -- although now being multi-patterned is, annoyingly, more on trend -- which is a legitimate criticism that I accept, but still think, whatever, it's how I dress.

  I'm pretty sure Epaulet has stopped carrying Carmina. Isn't Carmina doing most of their business direct and through Reddit these days anyway?
 Just wanted to make sure no one missed the shoe trees in the sneakers. That's shoe care dedication! Are those Woodlore Epics?
 
 Photos please! Cannot wait for my Foggy Bog Moss SC. Maybe the fact you received yours means mine is not far behind? It's 70 degrees in New York but I can still feel tweed season around the corner...
+1•10^8. Green-tone wool pants are an incredible asset in a fall wardrobe. I wear mine from a few seasons ago all the time. In general I wear green-tone pants very often. Also @nd1nd2nd3 I have both the Nightshade Flannel and Navy Flannel and boy am I glad I do!@edubs01 I own multiple shades and fabrics of a given color flannel and am very glad I do. Like for grays, I have Pearl Gray (lightweight), the Charcoal Birdseye (moderate), and the Chessboard Tweed (heavy, dark)....
